Alan Freeman - Wants List!

bookmark this page:


One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!

Excepting any listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for projects. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, so please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, nor ones that are low bandwidth or not transferred directly, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!

Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: with your wants list? I have a huge archive. We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I can swap physical CDRs, or online via flac or mp3. Or you can buy.


Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!
Items in red are new here

Research wants...

German/Krautrock releases we still need to hear...

CONTACT, LP Blackfield Tonstudio Bts 721 (1972) Pseudo Krups / Osmose / Laubentanz / Faktotum - this is pre Contact Trio, but with a clarinet player instead of guitarist. Likely to be too jazz for me. An mp3 track sample will do.
Eulenspygel - TRASH (Spiegelei 23-707-3 U) - please has anyone out there got the 8-Track and able to copy it?
Ex Ovo - IN DER RHEIN-MOSEL-HALLE, CD private - a bootleg?

Store Evil - LIVE Aus Dem Leine-Domicil, LP Lava TCH 77350 (1977) jazz-rock of some sort (on Discogs). Sounds good based on the one track (streaming sample) on Fagostore site, a bit Ibliss, Aera, Kraan like. Review there says some of it is funky. Need to hear the whole album!

Recent discoveries - are these of interest?....

Attention - Greenville, Carolina / Green Kitchen, 7" Polydor 2041 179 - 1971 probably pop - on Discogs

Changes - IMAGES TO REMEMBER, LP - KS 9005 - Swiss 1990 - - Don't know if I'm interested, this turns out to be the same band as issued THE GROWING NUMBER in 1994 which wasn't so great.

Saytenspiel - SAME, Austria 1984 - drummer: Franz Schmuck

Pure experimental folk, with very long psychedelic improvisations, without traditional template but with old (fiddle, harp, lute) and exotic (sitar and others) instruments. Extremely rare original (Serhant Label, without no.) from 1984 with double insert

Saytenspiel - KONZERTANZ, MC 1992 - or is it called: TANZHEFT ? German band - also definitely folk

Schmandelekker ‎– TOURDION, LP Ornament ‎– CH 7.336 - found at - turns out to be mellow folk in German based on " Mosella in Trauer" on

Sonatinenblues - instrumental folk? representative?:

Steinzeit  - GEBURTSTAG, LP (Absurde Geburten 8511101) 1982

according to seller, documented on Popsike...

Recorded at the Ougenweide-Studio in Hamburg. Musically totally avantgarde, somewhere between early FAUST, CAN in their "Tago Mago" phase, Lothar & The Hand People and some hints of 80s Berlin bands like Malaria or Einstürzende Neubauten.

Tracks: Steinzeit / Japan / Schützenkönige / Wie Du Dir so ich mir / Karibische Messer / Falkland / Liebe ist kälter als Eis / Der Araber / Die fromme Helene - Morgenstund hat Volt im Mund

French 1970/80's acts of possible interest and/or need to hear...

rip needed, please has anyone out there got?...
Iris - single A-side "Aux Portes Des Villes" - or at least that's what I think I want!
of which the 1st 40 secs can be heard at the end of this:
important: the B-side "Opus 340" (which I have already) is listed wrongly as "Aux Portes Des Villes" in many places, i.e. = Opus 340!
Confused? Ideally I require a flac rip of both sides from someone that has it!
So, the Jungle Vibe thanks to Bosko was premature, but at least I now know how to record a stream!

Abramose ‎- ABRAMOSE, LP private 808 (1975) most curious looking, could be good? single is nice!
Agartha -  Fini Pour Toi / Jacky Et Freddy, 7" private (1982) reputedly prog
- 30secs at - sounds like a funky Steve Hackett with a bad drummer and punky female vocals, so not very promising!
Aiguade - CHANSONS DES TEMPS FIGÉS, LP Baccara International BI 001 732 (1976) prog-folk?
Aleph - Love Memories / Injection, 7" Disc'Az SG 225 (1970)
Amalgame - LES BILLARDS VERTS, LP private AMA 30 CM 1 (1979) Apparently more Memoriance or Ange vein
Ananke - Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'dit Qui Y'est - almost unanimously listed as jazz-rock! Musea: Quatuor de Dijon, ANANKE produit un jazz-rock technique, virtuose et teinté d'humour. Le 45 tours "Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'Dit Qui Y Est" (1982) peut évoquer les oeuvres de Frank ZAPPA ou ZAO, tout en empruntant à Albert MARCOEUR et ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN leur fantaisie et leur goût du pastiche. It also gets listed in the French punk discography!
Atoll - Je T'aime Quand Je Te Vois / Change Ta Vie, 7" Eurodisc Pop 12806 (1973) non-album tracks
Atoll - Le Secret Du Mage / Je Fais Un Rêve, 7" Eurodisc Pop 12811 (1974)
different version/non-album track (not live)
think I found these recently? - if not, got ubupopland incomplete samples to compare

Roger Bellon - ROGER BELLON (RCA Victor ) 1977 - Balance series jazz-rock with Magma connections
rather unexciting based on: - other track recently added on YT is much more interesting akin to Clivage gone jazzy
Pascal Chassin - La Nouvelle Européenne / Don Juan 80, 7" Ballon Noir ‎BAL 45004 - curious sounding 1979 single (based on 30 sec sample on by band that's almost Komintern!
Claude Demet - HORDE, LP Crypto ZAL 6404 (1982) ???? doubt it'll be of interest.
Giani Esposito - BOUDDHA - MÉDITATIONS, LP PES 301031 (1971) looks curious, with Serge Franklin
Serge Franklin - FREE SITAR, LP Monde Melody MM 3346 - excellent trippy stuff based on YouTube tracks
Guidon, Edmond, Clafoutis - Be A Rock N' Roll Star / Stormy Sunday - 7" private 1974 not as good as their other one
Madhya - Les Chants Du Soir À La Villa Carlotta, Le Kiosque d'Orphée KO/ 81.0909, 1981 obscure synth/neo-cassical?
Alain Markusfeld - L'Epave / La Croix De Modez ‎(7", Single) Barclay 61.532 L 1972 ubupopland A side incomplete
Alain Markusfeld - Le Gluemour / Le Requin Central ‎(7", Single) Barclay 61.812 1973
Metabolisme - Highway Over You / Tempus - 7" FLVM 4517 (1979) need non LP single A side - b-side on LP

Sanctus - Jane / Go To Hell, 7" Studio 35 BM 66 (1973) Go To Hell = nice heavy/brassy psych prog, need A Side
Soixante Étages - SOIXANTE ÉTAGES, MC private 1986 - another AYAA related band
Soixante Étages - VOISINS DE PALIER, MC private 1986
other stuff at:
Véhicule Léger - Lame De Rasoir / Nez Rouge, 7" FLVM 4540 (1980) sounds like some sort of bizarre Zeuhl based on 30sec sample of Nez Rouge at
L'Association Des Musiciens Et Artistes De Touraine Presente "live in Tours 1977" (Disques Barrier 11001) 2LP 1977 - Les Anges Noirs / Avalanche / Deep Feeeling Blues Band / Novelo "Tandava"
Terrain Vague - POUR QU'IL TE RESTE UN PEU DE MOI (SRC 543 954) 1981 French folk, could be interesting?
Jean-Louis Vincent - RÉSONANCES, LP Barclay 90.032 (1975) may just be folk, but has some interesting musicians on it

Clues and more info welcome. A smaple mp3 may do.Some may never have released anything!...

Belle De Jour - Sustain Love/Etoiles de la Nuit - is on the French new wave discography where it says "progresif"
Bestiole - MLP Dans les marais/Le voyageur/Rue du chevau fug - turns out to be a 7" EP, first track sounding like Simon & Garfunkel in French, 2nd track sounds like some bubblegum pop band (i.e. Sweet or Mud - French style), whereas the B side is quite a nice prog number.
Croque Mitaine - LA CHANSON DU FOU - apparently akin to Malicorne, so should be worth investigating! Found a picture, seems we've had it in the past & didn't keep
Distance - Moshi, Moshi (Mercury 6313.143) 1981 - some sort of fusion? "Melodic AOR" according to some sources!
Dynamo - jazz-rock tinged with humour 1979

Claude Guillan-  Anita/Je me fais tout petit - pop, it seems
Imbroglio - SAUF LA PANTOUFLE - free-jazz, ex Confluence - info:

Neophyt - Tout seul tous les deux/Le noir - un rock mélodique dans la lignée de ICARE, bénéficiant d'une emphase vocale ...
Ogoun Feraille - Ogoun’s comin / Samba à la Jef (PES 451 133)
Rackham-Le-Rouge (R 8201) Alain Gautier & others, seems to be pop

Trouble - unknown single from 1977
Yecta Plus Band (pre Flamen Dialis) same info everywhere "After releasing a 45 in England in 1971..." - anyone got it?

Italian research...

Need a recording...
Lydia Et Hellua Xenium - Diluvio / Conoscevo Un Uomo, 7"  Radio RRS 1063 (1974) got: Diluvio side, also Guai A Voi / Invocazione - found 1:38 of Conoscevo Un Uomo at
Mediterranea Mesolella Band - Jonium / Vai Facile, 7" Amiamoci  AM 2007 (1980) Vai Facile is apparently same as the LP version

Need to hear at least snippet...
Officina Meccanica - Signora Marisa / La Mia Strada In Periferia, 7"  Picci LG 3014 (1972) - found A-side, okay a bit poppy
Officina Meccanica - The Land Of A Thousand Dances / Un Prato E Poi Sognare, 7"  Picci LG 3020 (1973) - - found B-side

New unknowns...
Gruppo Odissea - ODISSEA, LP AEDO LPK 3357 (197?) - looks like a pop LP, but has only 5 tracks
- found on Discogs tagged as Space-Rock = rather naff and almost m-o-r Eurovision based on the YouTube track found by Bosko

Are any of the following Italian bands/soloists worth hearing?...
Cuncti Gens Una - L'alba di Gretel / Autunno - said to be: halfway between pop and melodic progressive
Human Expression - BEING IN THE BECOMING, LP  private HE 7 (1985) - 80's prog, supposed to be a good one!

Punto 2 - ODORE DI CAPRA - LP  Ghibli CD 3304 (1977) - a little known melodic pop album?

If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing. (was written 2007)
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
Some favourite bands? What do we already have? See our collection list!
